Big Lake

5 posts in this topic

I live right next to Big Lake and have fished it some over the previous summer. All I have been able to find are a lot of small bass and small pannies. Has anybody fished this lake much and see any decent pannies or larger fish of any sort (other then carp)?

I've fished this lake very frequently during the winter. There are some nice crappies if you look for them. The sunfish quality has really gone down over the years. There can be some pretty decent walleye fishing as well. Lots of pike with some decent ones in the mix.

Get away from the crowds and do some exploring and you'll find more quality fish.

Good Luck!

There's a lot of nice fish in there, just gotta know where to look! But, I'm not giving out that info since I have a camper on Twilight Acres Resort. Gotta keep my honey-holes to myself ya'know! grin.gif

Which side of the lake is that resort on? Is that the one with the semi public access for boats and ice fisherman that you pay a couple bucks to use?

      I can speak for Ludlows and have nothing but high praise. Mark, Sally, Paul and Kelly run a top notch resort. June to early September they are usually about Max capacity each week. Outside of the peak season weekend use is still relativity high. They don't have a restaurant on site but will provide(cooked in house) high end meals for some large cooperate groups that come in. They aren't struggling and the service won't be beat anywhere on Vermillion.

      hope you all are paying close attention to the meandered water issue at bay here in SD. Sounds like some landowners in Mn are taking notes.    Its a difficult subject and I and can see both sides from private and public perspectives.

      Now that the ice is gone, what do people fish for before the walleye opener? Any reports?
